Ohio’s Community Colleges, Tech Schools, Career Centers to Offer Intel-specific Courses

The courses are part of a standardized curriculum so they can be transferred

Ohio's community colleges, technical centers, local career centers and school districts will offer new programs and career pathways for students who want to work at Intel.

Silicon Valley semiconductor maker Intel made an initial $20 billion investment to build two new microchip factories in Licking County that is expected to create 3,000 jobs. Those jobs include more than 2,000 technicians, more than 700 engineers and about 150 support workers.

"Every Ohio resident has the opportunity to earn an in-demand tech credential at no charge to them," said Lt. Gov. Jon Husted. "Ohio's no longer the rust belt. We are the Silicon heartland. We want to be the economic juggernaut of the Midwest. We want to have the best education-trained workforce in the Midwest."
